The biweekly eNewsletter from Christian Union

I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith...

Prayer Requests

Please pray that many students from Christian Union ministries would attend the Nexus 2017 conference for students, and that God would work powerfully in those students' lives. This conference — which is held in parallel with the Nexus Professionals Conference — will be held April 7-9, in Stamford, CT.

As we enter into the season of Lent we remember that this is a time not only of reflection and repentance, but a time also of God beckoning His people back to the hope and glory of the resurrected Christ. This is a time for us to convey this welcome to a watching world looking for meaning and hope.
